A Stick-On Device Is Changing The Way Musicians See The Acoustic Guitar

Jun 7, 2015 By Archit Tripathi
ACPAD is the world's first wireless MIDI controller for acoustic guitars. It was created as a collaboration between Berlin-based musician Robin Sukroso and his partners and the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay. Sukroso wanted to create a piece of equipment that would allow him to blend his love of electronic and acoustic music. After 3 years of research and development, he and his team came up with this.

The ACPAD is just 2mm thick and has no wires or screws. It's a stick-on interface, powered by a rechargeable battery, and features a USB connection for recharging. The USB also works as a MIDI connection, though the device is capable of wireless MIDI connection as well. It features 2 live loopers, various sound effects, a drum pad and more. The ACPAD can also be easily customized aesthetically, and its thin design means it has extremely low acoustic dampening properties so your guitar can keep sounding bright and clear. Sukroso is now taking the product to Kickstarter, where I can definitely see it generating a lot of interest.
